Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide

In response to these decisions, the Catholic Organization for Life and the Family (COLF) issued a news release entitled “Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide – We have reached a crossroad: let us choose life!”  and has requested the assistance of all Canadian dioceses in promoting the circulation of this document.

Over the past several years, as our population has aged, the call for the legalisation of euthanasia and assisted suicide has become more prevalent in Canada. In response to this, COLF has prepared several documents (listed below) which present clearly and concisely the argument s in favour of choosing life - both in our daily living and in our political involvement.
